Q

How can I add shortcuts to shared folders in My Documents?

I have all Windows XP clients in a Windows 2000 domain. I would like to add shortcuts to shared folders in the My Documents folder instead of a mapping drive. This way users can use My Documents for all opening and saving of files. Is there a way to do this though group policy or a script? I would like to administer this from the server instead of adding the shortcuts at every machine. Thanks so much for your help.
I think you are asking how to map shared drives and folders to a subfolder of My Documents instead of to a drive letter. If that's what you are asking, then you can do it by creating a shortcut within My Documents, then on the first page of the shortcut creation wizard, define the location of the object as the resource share you wanted mapped (whether it is a shared folder or an entire shared drive).
